what are ticks?

Ticks are both arachnids and parasites; human and animal blood is their sole food source. Due to the variety of mammal hosts they feed on, these pests pick up and transmit many diseases to both people and animals. Ticks have eight legs, no wings, and singular, oval-shaped bodies. After feeding, their bodies swell with blood and grow. Ticks have specialized mouthparts they use to penetrate their host’s skin, and insert a barbed, tube-like structure to anchor themselves and feed.

Due to the number of deadly diseases ticks spread to people and animals through their saliva while they are feeding, ticks are very dangerous pests to have living on your property. Diseases that ticks can spread include Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, and ehrlichiosis.

why do i have a tick problem?

Ticks move onto properties on the backs of their hosts such as rodents and other wild animals. After falling off their host, they wait in tall grasses, thick vegetation, and in wooded areas for a new host to happen along that they will then latch onto.

Ticks live and breed outside. While they may find their way inside on the backs of our pets or our clothing, they won’t cause a large-scale infestation. Ticks are not able to complete their life cycle indoors. The females require damp soil to lay their eggs in. People and animals encounter ticks along the edge of ponds, wooded areas, and lakes. You’ll also find them in large numbers along road ditches, fence lines, and in our yards.

how can i prevent ticks in the future?

In addition to our professional services, the following prevention tips will help to keep ticks out of your home:

  • Put your pets on a year-round tick control program under the guidance of their veterinarian.
  • Remove dense vegetation and cut back overgrown shrubs and bushes.
  • Keep your grass cut short.
  • Cut wooded areas back away from your property line.
  • Regularly vacuum your floors, especially in areas where your pet spends most of its time.
  • Get rid of food sources for wild animals; remove bird feeders, keep lids on trash cans, and pick up uneaten pet food.
